On 15 January 2008, at 5pm, Police Colonel U-dom Janpitak, Commanding Officer of Chonburi Province, unearthed a network of foreign Ya-E dealers in Pattaya. He directed Chonburi Police Major Anek Sra-thong-yoo to coordinate with Pattaya Police Colonel Nopadol Wongnom in arresting Mr. Yacov Cohen (54), an Israeli national, at house no. 511/2 Moo 10, Soi 8, South Pattaya, Nongprue. Mr. Cohen had previously been arrested and charged with possessing Ya-E and cocaine in his house. Because he had jumped bail, police had obtained warrant no. 813/2549 from the court so they could arrest him, again, at this time.

After he was apprehended, Mr. Cohen led the police to the house of Mr. Yisrael Krispin (41), also an Israeli, address 55/94 Soi Arunothai, Moo 9, Nongprue, Banglamung. Police also had a warrant for Mr. Krispin’s arrest, but he was not home. A search of his house yielded sixteen bags of Ya-E totaling 1600 tablets. They were packed in a purple, plastic bag and bound with black tape, hidden in a house plant. Police confiscated the Ya-E as evidence.

The same police team was informed that there were other members of Mr. Krispin’s network at large and they tracked down and arrested Mr. Vasko Konomi (40), a British citizen, who lived in room 3/368B, on the sixth floor of Center Condominium, behind Wat Chai Mongkol, South Pattaya. Police searched his room and retrieved several sets of Ya-E paraphernalia, which police seized as evidence. Mr. Cohen and Mr. Konomi were taken to the police station for processing and to face the justice system.

Police Colonel U-dom Janpitak, Commanding officer of Chonburi Province explained that top officials have ordered that the area be cleaned of criminal drug dealers. The police will mount an intensive search for Mr. Yisrael Krispin, so he, too, can be brought to justice.
